Ok I was itching to start this so my other stuff can wait ;D
I'm going to build a base/dio that's based on the box cover - my first go at this sort of thing so it should be interesting -









You can see what I'm up to, if anyone has any suggestions then please do say as I'd appreciate the help :)

Cheers Jeep, it's one of mine too, shame there's not more kits from the series, a Griffon from Revenge Road would be great :D

Cheers guys. Well I got the base done (well done for now I'll probably play about with it more later) now on with the kit.

Thanks very much chaps :)

I haven't got a lot done today, been getting some decals on that F-2A and humping a freezer over to my brother's house. However I have got Priss off her sprues and taken a good look at her - my, my has she got nice legs :p



I think my AMS is kicking in as I really don't like those knee caps - take a look at the box art - that's how you'll see her knees normally. Think it's time for some cutting and blending - not sure whether to use putty or styrene for this though. What do you chaps think the best way to tackle this is?

Cheers Jingles, I had a think about it and I'll think I'll leave 'em as they are, one reason being is I don't want a fixed pose, another being I just can't be bothered ;D
Just had enough time today to get her together (I can break her into pieces for painting though)


Sorry my shots are a little blurred - must be my eyes ;D

She's looking really good there.
Maybe you could simply shave the kneecaps down just a bit.

http://www.amazon.com/Bubblegum-Crisis-Roleplaying-Adventures-AnimeWorld/dp/0937279803 ( link to book 1)

The above link is to the Bubblegum Crisis role playing game by Fuzion. There were multiple books, I have 1 and 5, (they are NOT easy to find) Anyway there are LOTS of schematics and artwork included in the books. It really depends on which one of Priss's Suits (she did tend to break stuff) you are modeling. Most of them have a "knee" but it looks like it is part of the upper let (thigh) armor plate. It is defined as a knee ball but it looks like it "melted" out of the upper plates.

Here is a link to a FAQ with lots of links to further information and images.

Cheers. Just to show I am still tinkering with this I have a very small update, got back to some other builds.
Primer on cos I don't trust that shiny metallic blue plastic - I'm right, got some more sanding and a bit of filling to do but nothing too bad.

I'm going to leave the knees - mainly due to laziness, sorry oh well...
